This volume provides three different approaches to instructional programs. Gregg Geary demonstrates how plans for teaching non-music majors about music resources match educational competencies established at the University of Hawaii; Laura Snyder presents the course she helped develop while teaching a graduate-level class on music bibliography at Eastman; and Kathleen Abromeit offers an overview of the program employed at Oberlin Conservatory Library for training undergraduate students to serve as reference assistants. This easy-to-read manual enables the reader to learn about the traits of these programs, adapt ideas to make them applicable to their own settings, and ultimately benefit from the experiences of these authors.
